I have seriously been considering the idea that I may be Bipolar. My moods have been raging up and down, and it’s exhausting. Yeah, I know -- people (especially girls my age) have mood swings. But these are crazy. Big time crazy.
That or my depression is getting bizarre…
I’ve had some good things happen, which always make the world a little brighter.
As of today, it has been two weeks since Mr. Agent-Man emailed me and is supposed to email me back. Has he? No. Do I hope he will tomorrow, or Monday? Yes. Yes I do. Because waiting is starting to get nauseating. Which is yucky.
And I really need to start working on some things internet presence wise. I really think I’m going to start reviewing a lot more. Perhaps a lot of what I read -- ARC or not. I enjoy that. And I’ll guest review and whatnot. It’ll all be good.
I’m bummed I didn’t watch much Dragonball Z last night because of the stupid storming. I had to sleep downstairs. Ugh. I hope to catch up tonight.
So, how is the rest of the world out there? I’m down, hoping for good enough news to bring me back out of my rut.

I miss New York. Like, I've been plotting some way to just magically appear there soon. Thank God I've chosen the profession I have -- publishers and agents alike hideout in New York. I see myself going back there A LOT.And no, that isn't one of my NY pictures. This is one of those things I'm thinking of adding to spice up the ol' bloggy blog. Pictures in the blogs. Yay, pictures!
I'm very VERY pleased that soon I can release one of my big secrets to you all. Like, I'm insanely excited. And wish to tell you now...but cannot.
I'm *supposed* to hear back from Mr. Agent-Man by or on Thursday. I'll give him until Monday. Then I shall go crazy with worry. Behold -- Angel the Worried.
I do plan to be more internet-active this summer. I'm going to bust my writerly bum to get out there, not to mention I'm going to start reviewing like a fiend. Everything I read -- BAM! On the review blog. So you all should start spreading the word about my blogging. ;)
Okay, off to watch MORE Dragonball Z and probably read..or something.

Okay, so I confess: I have been babbling off to mom about random conferences and conventions I'd like to attend sometime next year. I swear, I'm going to make that woman crazy. Which is perfectly alright by me.So far, the two main things I've been stressing are BEA (Book Expo America) and RT (Romantic Times Convention). I'd be even more stoked if I were going as Angel Young, girl whose book is in the process of publication versus Angel Young, still the wanna-be.
Well, what'd you guys thing of the poetry idea? Totally cool if you don't like it, I'm just sifting around. I like to give you guys something to look forward to, and since I can't have good news all the time, I figured a theme or something would be nice. Just a simple pleasantry.
Today, I'm going to throw out an idea that I actually may just start using every now and then for fun, just because I like it.
" Happy are those who dream dreams and are ready to pay the price to make them come true."
-- Author Unknown
Fitting for me, I think. Dream dreams, my Scribblings. And fight like Hell to make them become your reality.
Well, I am off to draw and watch Dragonball Z. I think this may become a habit for me. Hmm.

I don't believe I mentioned it, but I did join Facebook and Twitter for networking purposes. Twitter hasn't done a lot, but I've been branching out a bit more via Facebook. Go me and my bad self.I'm SO grateful to finally be feeling better. I did get my schedule for college next year. Yay for that! I'm very excited, though I'm absolutely turned off by the idea of algebra *gag* which is why I'm starting off in Elem. Alegbra and working my way to College Algebra. Maybe that way I can figure out what I'm doing exactly so I won't flunk out. Luckily, I seem to have all my classes with my Krissy, which makes the world of college seem a lot less terrifying. (hooray for having the same advisor/major) I don't remember my schedule off hand, but I'll post what the classes are (days & times are still a blur):
- History of Art I
- Elem. Algebra
- American History I
- 2-D Design
- Drawing I
- Wellness Center I
Fun fun. Sixteen credit hours to add on to the nine I'm already graduating with. Weeeee!
No word from Agent-Man, ladies and gents. He has until Thursday before I email him whining. Because I deserve to whine after nearly a year. And I swear, if he makes it to May 19th and doesn't reply, he'll get a Happy Anniversary email from yours truly--the smartass. You gotta love me.
Seriously. It's like...law or something.
So, I've been bugging people into helping me with the planning of my official "dot com" site -- 'cause I'd like to be ready when time comes for publication. You know, because I'm an obsessive Virgo like that.
I know a tad, like the first few steps, maybe. Otherwise, I am lost.
Any advice you can send my way is mucho appreciated.
So, I'm thinking, themed blogs.
I think I might test out a few, starting with one tonight. This theme shall be Poetry.
As in, my good readers, poems I find and feel I'd like to share with you. Tonight, I'd like to share with you one of my favorite poems. Remembrance by Emily Bronte:
Cold in the earth—and the deep snow piled above thee,
Far, far removed, cold in the dreary grave!
Have I forgot, my only Love, to love thee,
Severed at last by Time's all-severing wave?
Now, when alone, do my thoughts no longer hover
Over the mountains, on that northern shore,
Resting their wings where heath and fern-leaves cover
That noble heart for ever, ever more?
Cold in the earth, and fifteen wild Decembers
From those brown hills have melted into spring:
Faithful indeed is the spirit that remembers
After such years of change and suffering!
Sweet Love of youth, forgive if I forget thee,
While the world's tide is bearing me along:
Sterner desires and other hopes beset me,
Hopes which obscure, but cannot do thee wrong!
No later light has lightened up my heaven;
No second morn has ever shone for me:
All my life's bliss from thy dear life was given,
All my life's bliss is in the grave with thee.
But when the days of golden dreams had perished,
And even Despair was powerless to destroy,
Then did I learn how existence could be cherished,
Strengthened, and fed without the aid of joy;
Then did I check the tears of useless passion,
Weaned my young soul from yearning after thine;
Sternly denied its burning wish to hasten
Down to that tomb already more than mine.
And even yet I dare not let it languish,
Dare not indulge in Memory's rapturous pain;
Once drinking deep of that divinest anguish,
How could I seek the empty world again?
Now, I'm going to try out a few more of these themes, then have a special blog to see which you guys like, and which you don't. 'Cause I'm fun like that. ;)
So, I've been talking with my mom about going to the Romantic Times Convention, or Book Expo America next year. I'm really pushing for Book Expo. Sounds fabulous, does it not?
I'm all about the traveling and the book and the networking. ;)
I swear to blog more. Honest..
How are you all doing, my Scribblings?

I've been pretty sick since Saturday night. I haven't been to school all week. Tried to go to school today but was wayyy too sick and was sent home.
Now I'm relaxing, having myself another Batman marathon (I spent Tuesday watching most of my Batman movies). I just finished Batman Returns, and am about to put it Batman and Robin.
Whenever I get done I'm going to get to work on a new project. There is no rest for the hard working sick writers.
Except now, as I watch Batman movies...
Prom is on Saturday. Tomorrow I have Freshman orientation at the college. Joy.

I'm looking for some more FAQ's. Anything you guys wanna ask me??
And if you don't read Stephanie Kuehnert's weekly posts of Women Who Rock Wednesday, you should. I aspire to be interviewed one day for that...
Here's a link to her most recent interview:
They do rock. Every Wednesday.
I have that good news still--
but must continue to bite my tongue.
